I will be tapping into the reverse wire soon, also for a reversing camera.
Will let you know once I figure it out. But I might take it from the central electronic module (CEM).

Follow it back from the Bulb cluster, if you have it in reverse and ignition on find the reverse bulb and find the wire that way.

Hi John, i have not yet gotten a a mirror reverse and dash cam yet but if i did i would get a 10" Tourgard off eBay around £99 however i would take advice if you get the WiFi version as it may interfere with you Camera system on the Windscreen (allegedly)

Thanks Rick i will have a look at them
No Problem John, what i was thinking of doing was mounting the rear view Camera inside next to the Rear Wiper fixing, (the Tourguard i think comes with Bluetooth or WiFi connectivity to the rear camera) as that way you get a Power source and keep the camera clean also harder to steal otherwise you can fix it to the Number plate, i live in a Rural area so out in the rain and the back end gets covered in Mud and dirt, let me know how you get on and good luck with it.
Rick
